Ill buy it just to see what Dwights tribute to Canada is :D

Seriously, though, this is interesting in that the studio is going to provide a BD-J video player and deliver subscription content in competition with others. I wonder if this will lead to a longer term strategy where the power of BD players will be used to compete with VOD from BDUs, AppleTV and PS3? Perhaps the studios see this as an inexpensive way to gain the upper hand?
